The Faint to Bring Dance-y Sing-Alongs to That Damn Show

The roster of touring acts of That Damn Show gives the festival the appearance of something that happened a decade ago. I remember being stoked to see acts like Bad Religion, Face to Face, and Fenix Tx for the first time in the early Aughts -- and, in some cases, at Mesa Amphitheatre. Wasn't Bad Religion, Less Than Jake and Authority Zero an unlikely but fun show? That Damn Show 2013, with its punk/reggae lineup, seems like the long-awaited sequel.

Many fans feel the same sentiments about The Faint. I somehow missed the boat and didn't get into the band until I saw them live at Los Angeles' FYF Festival last year, and then I was hooked. I had the pleasure of interviewing Todd Fink and seeing the band at Crescent Ballroom a couple of months later at my favorite show of 2012.
